An invitation to learn TM

Peace Palace

Learning Transcendental Meditation in Residence.

An alternative way to learn Transcendental Meditation is in residence. The venue is the beautiful 30 bedroom Maharishi Peace Palace in Suffolk - about 1 3/4 hours from London set close to an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) - both forest and coastal heathland with charming Suffolk coastal villages and towns nearby - just down the road from Sutton Hoo.

Arrive after lunch and stay three nights departing 12.30pm on the final morning. We offer courses over a long weekend or mid-week break.

One-time payment

It is an inescapable fact that in this country there is a huge variation in people's ability to pay.

In recognition of this, the Trustees of Maharishi Foundation, the charity that teaches TM in the UK, have developed a scale of fees based on gross income.

In this way people on higher incomes pay more and those on lower incomes pay less. We do not ask to see payslips or anything, but simply rely on your integrity.

Course fees:

Earning over £40,000 - £590

Earning over £25,000 - £490

Earning over £15,000 - £390

Earning less than £15,000 and students - £290

School students - £190.

Under 10 - 25% of main parent's fee.

Special rates:

  • There are special rates for families and couples.

  • If you are on a higher income and would like to make an extra donation this helps to support those on lower incomes.

Add Bed & Breakfast costs to your instruction fee:
(payable directly to the Peace Palace)

  • Standard ensuite bedroom - £79 (single occupancy) or £49 (per person double occupancy).
  • Executive ensuite bedroom - £95 (single occupancy) or £54 (per person double occupancy – choice of twin or super king size bed).

Prices for B&B are per person per night

These rates include a self-service vegetarian breakfast. Upgrade to a delicious vegetarian continental breakfast for a £10 supplement per day per person.

You can book our optional buffet vegetarian lunches (£15) and/or suppers (£10) - 24 hours notice is required.

Please note: We hope to return to teaching Transcendental Meditation later in the summer, taking into account the Government guidelines about re-opening including social distancing. Please book one of our weekly online zoom introductory talks and should you decide to go ahead with learning you can join our waiting list for when we start up again.

"I was amazed by the Peace Palace … the feeling of space was brilliant … the whole effect was one of under-stated elegance. The food was beautifully served and the staff were so helpful."

The Peace Palace is mainly used for residential TM Retreats for those who already practise Transcendental Meditation but also offers Wellness B&B for anyone who appreciates the settled ambience of the building and serves delicious organic vegetarian meals. It is the home of 'TM Suffolk' and is a lovely settled place to learn TM in comfort away from the busy demands of your daily life.

The Peace Palace is designed and constructed according to the principles of the most ancient system of architecture, Sthapatya Veda - Maharishi Vastu - realised in a modern context. It is part of a garden village development with 60 dwellings designed to the same principles - and more planned. There is also a Maharishi Ayurveda Centre next to the main building.

"I first discovered TM when listening to a discussion about it on the local radio station. This came during a time that was very difficult in my life having become widowed . Although I have have tried many forms of meditation, I felt there was a need for further growth. Whilst learning TM in residence at the Peace Palace, I had the privilege of meeting lots of people from all walks of life. Since practising TM it has given me the most amazing experiences and benefits. The meditation has left me feeling at peace, happy, more energetic and content. The benefits are indescribable, mentally and physically. My friends and family have all seen a wonderful change in me, I can't thank Annie and the team enough."
